As noted, there's already a ton of info in the forum on the topic, browse around. But some of it gets technical and confusing, so I'll give you my version of easy, no work composting. Get yourself some kind of bin to keep your compost pile piled. You can build one out of wood or concrete blocks (just be sure there are spaces between the slats or whatever, so it's not air tight). I bought a simple 4'X4' coated wire bin from garden store, which was pretty cheap and a great investment, since it's lasted more than a decade now. Once you have a bin, throw everything in it, kitchen scraps, all your yard waste, etc. Don't put meat scraps in, but I put pretty much everything else, including the coffee filters with the coffee grounds, paper towels... I keep a tightly covered bucket under the kitchen sink to collect kitchen scraps and just dump it in the pile when it gets full and/or nasty to open. When you add the kitchen scraps to the compost pile, cover them with a thick layer of leaves, weeds, whatever you have. Whenever it's hot and dry enough to need to water your plants, water your compost pile also, so it doesn't dry out.
That's it. Throw stuff in, keep adding to it as you need to, make sure there's a general balance between wet and dry, don't let it dry out. In 3-6 months, I take all the stuff off the top of the pile and make it the bottom of a new pile. At the bottom will be more or less finished compost, full of earthworms. Once you take the stuff off the top and expose the part where the earthworms are to sun and air, it will quickly become finished compost. I don't measure, turn, or worry about my compost and it works fine, though not as fast or hot as people who do it more scientifically.
